Got a similar offer, but for an AA card.

I just got this on my Citi Premier:
[font]Use your card to earn 5 ThankYou Points per $1 spent, up to 2,500 points, through 01/31/2020 on eligible purchases1 you make at:[/font]
[font][font]•[/font] Clothing Stores [/font]
[font][font]•[/font] Computer & Electronics Stores [/font]
[font][font]•[/font] Department Stores [/font]
[font][font]•[/font] Toy Stores [/font]

I'm not sure I'll be able to use this at all. Grocery and Drug Stores would have been awesome.

As a brand new Prestige Holder (backup to the Amex World) would love this offer. Imagine if the Prestige offered 5X on all of those items all year in the OP .... Would beat the Chase/Amex offerings everyday and twice on Sundays as far as building huge point balances goes! Yes, concede limitations of the Prestige with respect to some transfer partners and the 1x to 1.5 redemptions ......

I tried to click the offer in my email and it says technical difficulties....LoL

Got it and activated. Too bad only $500 spend, but I'll take it. Haven't gotten the Premier offer.

these things are usually targeted, comes every quarter or so (and lasts about about a quarter), typically up to $500 in spending

offer varies (sometimes specific merchant/category, sometimes online)

if you don't use your card, higher chance of being targeted

Has this link worked for anyone?????

I've tried it multiple times since I got the email and it still just says technical difficulties.

I am currently in Japan so maybe that's causing an issue?


Ugh.....Stupid Citi....

I just received this offer but how does it actually work? The T&C says: ąThis offer starts upon enrollment and will end on 03/31/2020. Earnings associated with this program will equal 4 bonus ThankYou® Point(s) per $1 spent on eligible purchases and may overlap with other special offers in which you are currently enrolled. Bonus points awarded with this offer are subject to a maximum of 2,500 additional points.

So is the 2,500 points divide by 4 = $625 or divide by 5 = $500
